Weekly Roundup | 15/07/18

Posted by

Welcome to my weekly roundup post, where I’ll be recapping my week in blogging, giving you some brief reflections on what’s happening in my world, and asking a Question of the Week to help me get to know you a little better. Let’s begin!

The Week in Review

It’s been a relatively quiet week on the blog, with only two posts published. The first was an invitation for you to listen to the 10th and final song from my music project, which was released on Tuesday. To read about the song and give it a spin, click here.

My main post this week was published on Thursday and it’s a post I spent a lot of time working on as it covers a hotly debated topic that can provoke strong opinions. The post is on the subject of suffering and in it I explain the reasons why I believe suffering is part of the human experience. To read the post, click here.

I previously wrote that I’ve been experiencing some technical problems switching between different WordPress plans. Unfortunately, this resulted in a few posts losing all their ‘Likes’ as well as images (the images have now been replaced). So I apologise if any of you were wondering why some of your Likes had disappeared!

A Few Personal Reflections

  • Due to a really busy July so far I haven’t been engaging with other blogs and bloggers as much as usual over the last week or two (so sorry!). I aim to get back into the swing of things with gusto after my holiday next week.
  • I’m traveling to Berlin very early on Tuesday morning and will be away for four days. I’ll be staying with my sister, whose WIFI is broken, so won’t be online as much as usual (although I’ll still be connected via the data on my phone). So it may be a quiet few days on Perfect Chaos…
  • Thanks so much to those of you who keep me in your prayers. I know God hears you and it means a lot to me. I’m planning to spend some quality time in prayer later today and on Sundays I always pray for all my blog followers and the community here on WordPress!

Question of the Week

Have you ever been to Germany? Any tips?!
Let me know in the comments!



  1. I have been to Berlin. There is a nice German restaurant that we went to, called Restauration 1840, not far from Alexanderplatz and the Dome Cathedral. We really liked it. They also did reasonably decent tea. We also did a boat trip down the river Spree. We also went to checkpoint Charlie. I went to see the statue of Nefertiti in the Museum. Plenty to see. Enjoy πŸ˜‰

    1. Hi Kristian! Thanks so much for the info and recommendations, I’m going to google them and ask my sister if she knows these places. Someone already recommended a boat trip πŸ™‚ And I’ll hopefully get to see the cathedral. Cheers, buddy!

  2. Hi Steven! Since you’re going to Berlin, I definitely recommend one of the Nazi history walking tours that are offered, absolutely fascinating if you have a soft spot for history. A day (or half-day)trip to Potsdam to see the old 18th and 19th century palaces and gardens are also well worth a visit.

    Have a great time!

    1. Hi David! Your recommendations sound excellent. I’m only just catching up on blog comments so just read this and it’s my last day here. We were thinking of going to a museum today so should be able to get my ‘history fix’! I’m sure a Nazi history walking tour would be fascinating. Thanks so much, bro!
